2020-03-17: The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and actions may change as the situation evolves. Here is a link to COVID-19 resources at Queen's: https://www.queensu.ca/covidinfo/

Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega, Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.

The Cataraqui Region Conservation Foundation has awarded the 2010 Education Conservation Award of Excellence to Queen's University Biological Station. Fittingly, the presentation was made on Earth Day, April 22, 2010 in a ceremony at the Outdoor Centre at the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area.

Michael Bell, President CRCF made the presentation to Dr. Bruce Tufts, Director of QUBS, citing:

"The Queen’s University Biological Station, founded in 1945, is one of Canada’s pre-eminent research stations, shaped by a long-term expansive vision of the importance of the protection of natural spaces (currently 2789 hectares) for the purposes of research and education."
